The risk of developing cataracts steadily increases with age, with over 1 in 4 Americans over age 65 experiencing this eye condition. Although there are several treatment options to restore vision in patients with cataracts, intraocular lens implantation remains a gold standard in the industry. Crystalens is the only accommodating FDA approved intraocular lens implant. It offers a wider range of vision than a conventional intraocular lens. Dr. Gary Tylock and Dr. Michael George of the Tylock Eye Care & Laser Center located in Irving; have extensive experience restoring the vision of cataract patients through Crystalens® implants technology.
The clear tissue forming the natural lens of the eye develops small clumps of proteins that form small cloudy areas, resulting in the development of cataracts. The most common risk factor leading to cataracts is increasing age. Also, there are other factors that contribute to the formation of cataracts such as diabetes mellitus, UV radiation, drugs, smoking, family history, and trauma.
Fortunately, advancements in cataract surgery techniques and intraocular lens implantation technology have dramatically increased the quality of life for millions of cataract sufferers. The Doctors and staff at The Tylock Eye Care & Laser Center in Irving, Texas, have dedicated themselves to providing the highest quality of vision correction while offering their patients a superior level of eye care in a safe and comfortable environment.
